Warning for delegates and exhibitors

It has come to our attention that a number of accommodation service providers have contacted companies supporting “Smithers Rapra's Extractables & Leachables” regarding hotel reservations. When delegates say they have already booked they are told that they need to finalise their booking by completing a form with credit card details. This generates a new booking and a 25% deposit is immediately charged to the card - this is non-refundable and any cancellation incurs a heavy penalty. These companies DO NOT represent Smithers Rapra and should NOT be given any credit card information.

Should you receive any correspondence from unauthorised organizations regarding accommodation arrangements for Extractables & Leachables or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your conference coordinator at +1 330 762 7441 x1135.
